      Yes, I honestly don’t want the surgery because I think it’ll be more pain than it’s worth for my particular case… but I do get very self conscious about it sometimes 🥴

      Oh guys!!! I am 32 and Mine is pretty deep, not sure the haller but I’ve seen an X-ray haha anyways I thought I was too old to get a surgery but had a video consult with a place in New Jersey. They do adult surgeries a lot, look up Dr Barry E. LoSasso. They referred me to a cardiologist here in Utah first to check my heart function and I’m getting the surgery later this year in NJ. Their my get a lot of out of state cases so they have a whole system set up. The consult was free ps

      I'm 23 and have a heart problem that has been clinically proven to be worsened by my chest wall deformity. I literally almost passed out when a doctor tried to palpate my sternum to assess the degree of deformity. I'm still told I can't have surgery because I'm "too young" and the surgery would be too risky because of my heart. the thing that's made worse by having a bone squished up against it. Also "women don't get pe" no they definitely do, but when you have basketball breasts it's kinda hard to see

        @wise can I ask how old you are without offense? My heart is relocated, pressed into my ribcage and mis-shapen. My lungs have low function and are relocated. And unfortunately I ended up with one D and one A so mine is twice as noticable.

          @Mama.Maam I'm 23! but I started developing breasts when I was 8 and they developed FAST so there was no hope of seeing it when I hit my teens. Nothing has relocated for me yet, but the compression of my heart and lungs (both of which are already problematic in their own way) makes even just sitting up unbearably exhausting
